    Some huge omissions: John Jude Palencar, James Gurney, Chris Van Allsburg, Leo & Diane Dillon, Don Maitz, Kinuko Y. Craft, Jeffrey Jones, Harry O. Morris, Thomas Canty, Jim Burns…

  2. Michael Whelan is only #28? REALLY!?!?

  3. And don’t forget John Picacio, and probably many others.  I’m not plugged into the art scene enough, but I suspect the list (which, as all lists, are ripe for disagreement) by listmaker choice covers more than those in the sf/f community, thus the glaring omissions.
